Didgeridoo, digerido, dijeridoo, didgeredoo, digeridu… how do you spell it anyway??

Posted: Friday, February 19, 2010 in Articles, Info & Education, News by Posted by

What I am about to tell you may come as a surprise! The word didgeridoo is not an aboriginal word for the instrument. That is why you can find it spelled so many different ways, such as digerido, dijeridoo, didgeredoo, didgeredoo, didgiridoo, didjerido, digereedoo, didjeridou, diggery doo, dijerido and even more!

If we take a look back in time it is evident that the word didgeridoo is only around 100 years old, where as the instrument itself is reportedly 40,000 years old.

The following excerpts are from newspapers and writings from early last century. It seems that the word didgeridoo developed from people trying to describe the sound the instrument makes.

1919: Smith’s Weekly (Sydney) 5 April 15/1
“The Northern Territory Aborigines have an infernal and allegedly musical instrument, composed of two feet of hollow bamboo. It produces but one sound – ‘didjerry, didjerry’.”
